Franklin County Judicial CenterFranklin County received its official charter on May 10, 1795, by act of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The newly formed county was created from portions of Mercer, Shelby, and Woodford counties and named for Benjamin Franklin, early American patriot, inventor, diplomat, and signer of the Declaration of Independence. 
 
Located in the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky with the state capital of Frankfort at its center, Franklin County has something for everyone, from the covered bridge at Switzer, to the natural beauty of the Kentucky River and Elkhorn Creek. There are rolling acres of bluegrass, farmland, distilleries, museums, and a wonderfully diverse selection of festivals, celebrations, and special events.
